Hi Andy,

 

I Guess you want to add a " 'skype icon' in body of your email which, on click, will pop up with "Do you want to add this person?" window". If this is what you want.

 

1. Go to http://www.skype.com/intl/en/tell-a-friend/wizard/

2. select function as "add me to skype".

3. Right click the picture and save it on your computer.

4. Open a "New email" message in Outlook 2010.

5. insert the picture.

6. Right lcik , insert Hyperlink and paste "skype:<your skype ID>?add" (without quote).

I want to add the skype icon/phone number to my outlook 2010 email messages; however, I can only add the picture and not my Skype Phone Number (step 6 below does not work for me).  Can someone provide advice on that?   Thanks.  Interestingly, it automatically occurred in my hotmail account, which links to Outlook.
